SUNNIES, FEDORA HAT OR SUNSCREEN?

If someone asks you what the most essential item for a sunny day is, what would be your answer? Are they only sunnies for your eyes? or a stylish fedora hat? Your skin needs much more that that. It definitely needs a shield of protection from the sunlight, or, it's commonly known as sunscreen. Sunscreen is one of the basic steps before you step outside and let your skin approach the sunlight because it is 'Skin Cancer Foundation'. More than 90 percent of the visible skin changes associated with aging are caused by the sun's ultraviolet rays.  The ultraviolet rays are divided into UVA, UVB, and UVC and your skin requires different kinds of protection because each ray has its own ways to damage your skin. It depends on your skin type, skin condition, location, and demands to find the right sunscreen that is suitable for you. You might ask how broad your sunscreen spectrum should be, what your SPF number is, how many pluses should your sunscreen has or if your face would turn into a mirror if you use sunscreen on a humid day. Then where should you start?




WHAT'S THE SUNSCREEN FOR YOU?

With all the questions you might ask, your life is now saved by Reviews. The team has spent months to research 135 different sunscreens. They narrowed down their options to the top four with the help of several dermatologists and skin cancer experts, then they personally tested the finalist ourselves. Reviews focused on making sure the sunscreens had enough SPF (not too little or too much), no harmful ingredients, were easy to apply, smelled pleasant, and most importantly — truly protected skin from aging UV rays. Their sunscreen review is divided into different sections - skin type, SPF, texture, scent, and water resistance - that easily assist you throughout your research. Reviews also provide beauty tips and helpful lessons about skincare that give you a healthy and beautiful skin.

Here is a series of photos taken in August Melbourne

Fleurs in Brunswick
One early sleepy shopping morning

Afternoon sun on the opposite building. This is the view from my room pretty much every afternoon. 


This is the view from my living room/bedroom/balcony. It's nice to wake up and see the ad for Hokusai exhibition every morning. Because this is the purpose to wait for somebody to visit me in September. And there you go the State Library of Victoria. And sometimes the sun's reflection.

It's a pity that I'm moving out next week and saying goodbye to this view.  But there's going to be a different view to look at in the morning. Hopefully, it's going to be as pretty as the person you wish to wake up next to.

Quick update: I have moved to Australia. 

A friend of mine, Neha, asked me to join one of her fashion projects which is visiting designer stores to seek for inspiration. We went to a few high fashion stores located on Collins street, Melbourne. We had a talk with a lady at Cose Ipanema and I have learned many new things like how the finishing can tell a product's value, how the hem works, and how luxury brands become mainstream (the Gucci loafers for instance). Plus, Dior is still using real fur.

(here is the list)

I was pretty much surprised by the amount of preference in real fur. Is it because of stylish material, or, I don't know, is it for more warmth? I never had a chance to ask because I had to process this thing in my head. But, after all, it's just a personal choice, as my friend said... What do you think?

I guarantee there will be more photos of me (if you're looking for them) in August and September blog posts. Stay tuned!

There are many important pieces of jewelry, especially silver jewelry that you want to add to your wardrobe. Some basic pieces can elevate other items to create a suite of jewelry.

Necklaces are a staple. There are so many different types of chains. From  heart, a bee, cherries, the first letter of your name to a plain and simple circle.

Rings are so much fun! Negative space is very on trend right now. Try wearing a silver midi ring in the shape of a heartbeat on your ring finger. This is one of the fashion statements popular right now.

Earrings are a must. There are so many to choose from. Can you imagine wearing a new maxi dress with a multi-layered silver chain and chandelier earrings or butterfly earrings? The long, flowing dress, in your favourite colour with long flowing silver chains. Maybe with a couple different charms to symbolise 8your favourite things.


If you are looking for the plain, sleek, streamlined look, check out https://www.silver.uk.com/. It is one the perfect places for you to start your online jewelery purchase. And if you are looking for pieces with gemstones, you can find it there too and they can even help you with your selections. They have outstanding customer service to help you make your choices.


IDEAS FOR OUTFITS



1. A basic black dress can be lifted to a little black dress with the right necklace, earrings, bracelets and rings. Even a simple necklace could raise the bar of a pair of jeans and a white T-shirt.

2. Smooth hoop earrings would be a great complement to a jean dress with a nice silver watch to round out the look.

3. And with summer, you have crocheted swimsuits. What would look better than some simple silver stud earrings, either smooth or button like or set with a faceted gem.

4. Then there are chokers that are becoming as popular as statement necklaces. A choker can adorn your neck as dainty and pretty or bold and full of chic.


TRENDS










The negative space trend is hot right now. Make sure to check that out. A perfect silver band can be split or have a pattern bent into the metal. There are also open circles, hearts, and bars. A silver bar necklace set with white diamonds would look gorgeous with a sleek suit.

You can also wear jewelry in your hair and not just a tiara. Bejeweled barrettes and metal clips are being made to decorate your hair for everyday occasions.


Take note of the points we’ve shared and look stunning everyday.
